Do you ever get into breakfast ruts?  I seem to have this problem often!  I know I need to eat something healthy, something that has a decent amount of protein, but am often at a loss.  Time is limited, especially during the week, so breakfast has to be something quick and easy as well.  I’ve come up with a fantastic breakfast that is not only healthy, loaded with protein, but is also quick and easy, too!  My Almond Joy Overnight Oats to the rescue!

If you’ve never made overnight oats before, I must say, you need to give it a try.  It really is a fantastic way to have a quick, grab-and-go breakfast at the ready.  Simply assemble the night before, place in the fridge, and when you wake up in the morning, you’ll have a completely delicious breakfast waiting for you!

Made with almond milk, Greek yogurt, along with the addition of chia seeds and oatmeal, this breakfast is loaded with protein and fiber.  I used cocoa powder to give these oats their chocolaty flavor, and added a couple packets of stevia sweeter.  Feel free to use the sweetener of your choice.  You can also sub in alternative milks like coconut milk, cashew milk or regular cows milk.

To give these oats a nice crunch, I added a tablespoon of slivered almonds, and toasted coconut chips.  I also broke up a square of dark chocolate for a little treat.  Leave this out if you’re trying to watch your sugar intake.

The consistency of the oats is amazing!  It’s has a wonderful thick, almost mousse-like texture.  Such a delicious, healthy and filling breakfast to start you day!
